Deanestor's £1.5 m furniture and fit-out contract for Brighton ‘3Ts’

Deanestor's £1.5 m furniture and fit-out contract for Brighton ‘3Ts’

Main contractor, Laing O’Rourke, has awarded the £1.5 m furniture and fit-out contract for the first phase of the £485 m ‘3Ts’ redevelopment of Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton to Deanestor.

The company, which has a long-standing relationship with Laing O’Rourke and architect, BDP, will manufacture around 17,000 items of furniture for the project, and fit out 2,000 rooms across the new, purpose-designed 11-storey building.

Stage one of the 3Ts redevelopment, being fitted out by Deanestor, will house inpatient wards on the upper floors, mainly comprising en-suite rooms with sea views. The lower floors accommodate outpatient and diagnostics services in spacious, modern surroundings. Public-facing services on the first and sixth floors include the main reception, waiting areas, retail units, a café, and welfare and wellbeing facilities.

Deanestor’s bespoke joinery includes a ‘stunning’ 6 metre diameter main hospital reception desk featuring natural walnut hardwood and veneers. It will also manufacture and install 35 nurse stations and staff bases with solid surface finishes and wood grain fascias, 40 staff touchdown bases, and hospital furniture for all consulting rooms, patient bedrooms, and utilities – including base and wall storage units with white Formica door fronts, adjustable shelving units – some with HTM71 tray inserts, and solid grade laminate worktops to patient bedrooms.

The Deanestor team will fit over 10,000 individual products procured by the Trust, such as rack storage systems, dispensers, clocks, noticeboards, benching, and white goods, and stainless steel furniture for the catering areas on each floor.
